Louisiana Appeals Panel Reduces Jury Verdict In Wrongful Death Suit

(July 14, 2017, 12:44 PM EDT) -- BATON ROUGE, La. — A Louisiana appellate panel majority on July 12 reduced a jury award in a wrongful death suit from $1.3 million to $450,000 and vacated the jury’s survival action award of $450,000 after finding that $450,000 was a sufficient amount for the wrongful death claim and that the plaintiff did not present enough evidence to support a survival action (Charles Thompson v. David Crawford, et al., No. 2015 CA 1957, La. App. 1st Cir., 2017 La. App. LEXIS 1299).
